Defective Product Injuries & Lawsuits

When an individual has been injured in an accident for which another person is responsible — whether it is a drunk driving accident, a slip and fall incident, or a dog bite — the accident victim has a right to demand financial compensation. The same is true when someone has been hurt by a household appliance, children's toy, automobile component, tool or other type of equipment. If the injury was caused by inherent design flaws, manufacturing defects or a failure to warn about hazards, the manufacturer can be held legally accountable under the legal principle of product liability.

Types of Product Liability Cases

You could potentially file a product liability claim for any of a variety of accidents, provided that the accident was caused — or contributed to — by the defective product. A common example of a product liability issue in recent years is car accidents caused by defective tires that are prone to tread separation or sidewall explosions, which can suddenly throw the vehicle out of control. It is also possible to sue a pharmaceutical company for dangerous drugs with serious side effects or a manufacturer of children's toys that contain toxic substances and pose a threat to the safety of the child. Any time that a manufacturer has placed its profits ahead of public safety, the victims have a right to sue for damages.

Why You Should Sue the Manufacturer

Remember, when you file a product liability claim, you are not only pursuing financial compensation for the losses you have suffered, but you also are holding the company legally accountable and may even save others from suffering similar harm. For example, in July 2012 GlaxoSmithKline, the fourth-largest drug company in the world, was ordered to pay $3 billion in fines for health care fraud based on allegations that they had illegally promoted their products, concealed vital information about the risks associated with their drugs and even bribed doctors to prescribe their medications.

The company had even promoted that the antidepressant Paxil, which has known side effects such as hallucinations, seizures and suicidal thoughts, should be given to children. Whether you have a relatively small individual case or a claim that develops into a large class action lawsuit, the attorneys at Stern Law Group are ready to help. We have won more than $700 million for our clients and we urge you to contact us now for a free consultation!
